It's time to find the JOY!

Okay, July has been a tricky month. Highs, lows, celebrations, tragedy, challenges, accomplishments. I've had some trouble gaining my balance, but...

Today is a new day and I'm finding the joy again.

That being said, this blog started out as fun. I intended to use it to document my activities, interests and whatever struck my fancy. Then, it kind of became a task, which I never intended nor wanted.

Since I'm focusing on joy, I've decided not to write about the disappointments or challenges that don't go well and leave it out in the world for all to read. So, I may be editing or deleting some posts as they don't really say who I truly am. They just reflect a moment in time.

"Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery." Jane Austen

I wholeheartedly agree. I believe that life is what you make it and I'm making it beautiful.

This picture is of my oldest clematis. It's been moved three times, but is now in it's permanent home. It is a testiment to learning to adapt. Each time it's had to move, there was a period of adjustment, but each time it successfully rooted, and grew stronger. Did you notice the handcrafted garden teepee? A mother's day gift from my husband and kids. Quite something. This clematis knows it's finally home and has celebrated by growing to adorn the teepee and blooming for weeks.
